The Lizzy Borden case always gave me chills as a child. Some stupid librarian at my grade school read us a short story about the case and in that short story was a nursery rhyme of sorts about the case . . . well, I got that damned thing stuck in my head and couldn't get it out.

gah . . . there are so many theories out there. Personally, I don't think she did it . . . kinda much for a woman in a corset but what do I know.

Haha I can't wear a corset for more than 2-3 hourse beofre I get fussy.
God forbid wearing one for 10 hours and murdering multiple people in a more physically involved way, say vs. poison....

(Sorry to barge in. I come from the Writer's Block page.)

They came to that conclusion, (rumor has it) because she was a woman. The Wikipedia entry, while not the most reliable of sources, says that a lot of the problem lay in how the crime was investigated. Like a lot of small town crimes, the police force was overwhelmed. There is no concrete evidence that she committed the crimes, though plenty of circumstantial. She was acquitted and spent her remaining days in that house... that is now actually a Bed and Breakfast. :D

no problem. I've known about the B&B for a bit now...
I agree with [livejournal.com profile] enigmaticae and don't think she did it.
there are just too many loose ends and lack of serious concrete evidence that she did.

here's that rhyme

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
And when she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.
